Annihilation has now had more info added to its characters, so while we know the film centres around a biologist (Natalie Portman, she was originally just known as The Biologist, like everyone else in the cast when it came to their profession (and it did seem quite a cool idea, originally, but it looks, now, like that info was just missing), and so as I type, IMDB is looking a little more filled out. Anyhoo, she signs up for a dangerous, secret expedition where the laws of nature don’t apply.
In an alien-style world and landscape, I was reminded of 2016’s Arrival, in terms of weirdness going on. However, I really enjoyed that, while writer/director Alex Garland’s Ex-Machina left me wanting.
This full trailer? While it does looks like Alien meets Jurassic Park, seeing this again, I am now really looking forward to this.
